Attempted to perform a restore of VM Hard Disks. At point to select datastore [Change] get a dialog.
Esx host with bios uuid ....not found.
Recently we upgraded our vsphere from 5.0 to 5.1 (vcenter server and esxi hosts) one of the hosts had to be rebuilt however - but the others an upgrade performed.
We have performed restores since the upgrades.
We had initial problems with Veeam licenses after the upgrades but that was resolved by revoking the licenses. This was related to the hosts that time. They still were in Veeam as 5.0 hosts.
I found the KB1063 article, performed revoke of all Veeam licenses. Even restarted all Veeam services and the Veeam SQL Express service. Also migrated the VM I am attempting the restore with. The same message only except a different uuid, possibly because of the migrate.
I have checked my Backup Infrastructure and I see all my ESXi hosts (detail summary shows 5.10 builds) and have rescanned the vcenter server.
Still same message.
My request via this forum post however, is how do I issue the SQL statement in the KB1063 article when I dont have SQL Studio Manager installed. (I am not a DBA of any level - really). Should I just install it?
